The Spaniard took charge of Man City in 2016 and has won back-to-back Premier League titles
Pep Guardiola, Man City boss, believes former Everton and Arsenal midfielder is capable of succeeding his at the Etihad Stadium.
The Mirror claim Guardiola is excited having his compatriot Arteta as his assistant since joining City from Bayern Munich.
Guardiola insists Arteta is destined to be a manager someday.
At the last count, the Spaniard has rejected offers from Arsenal and Newcastle in the last 14 months, but his boss at City remains confident he has all is required to be a success at City.
I’m pretty sure, yes. He will have success, yes. He had offers to leave but he decided to stay – thanks.
“Sooner or later he’s going to be a manager. He’s a young, young coach.
“He’s only 37 but he has experience already of handling big players and teams,” Guardiola summed up.
Meanwhile, the Premier League defending champions will be looking forward to pot Norwich defeat behind against Watford on Saturday, September 21 at the Eithad Stadium.
The 3-2 loss at Carrow Road saw Liverpool extend their lead at the top of the Premier League log to five points.
But Guardiola dismissed any worries about the Reds’ early lead in the log.
“After watching the game against Norwich I was not really upset by the way we played,” he said.
“I was upset against Newcastle because after one minute, we forgot to play. But the game against Norwich that didn’t happen.
We accept it. It doesn’t happen many times. I’m relaxed. When we lose, I’m not depressed. It’s going to happen.
“There are 99 points to play for, we are five behind, 99 still to play, let’s see how many we can get.
